CENTER VALLEY, Pa., Oct. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Olympus Corporation, a global medical technology company committed to making people's lives healthier, safer and more fulfilling, announced today the market launch of its next-generation EVIS X1™ endoscopy system, which will be on display and demonstrated Oct. 22-24 during the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) annual meeting in Vancouver, Canada.

"Olympus is thrilled to bring our most advanced endoscopy system to GI practitioners in the U.S.," said Richard Reynolds, President of the Medical Systems Group for Olympus America, Inc. "The remarkable new technologies for visualizing the GI tract are designed to help physicians see more and do more to help their patients."

The EVIS X1 endoscopy system received clearance earlier this year along with two compatible endoscopes: the GIF-1100 gastrointestinal videoscope indicated for use within the upper digestive tract and the CF-HQ1100DL/I colonovideoscope indicated for use within the lower digestive tract. The ErgoGrip control section of these endoscopes is 10% lighter than Olympus' previous generation, and they are designed to increase user comfort and scope handling and to accommodate users with small hands.

Features of the EVIS X1™ endoscopy system include:

Texture and Color Enhancement Imaging (TXI™) technology is designed to increase the visibility of lesions and polyps by enhancing image color and texture during endoscopic screening.
Red Dichromatic Imaging (RDI™) technology is designed to enhance the visibility of deep blood vessels and bleeding points.
Brightness Adjustment Imaging with Maintenance of Contrast (BAI-MAC™) technology is designed to correct the brightness levels in dark areas of the endoscopic image, while maintaining the brightness of lighter areas, to increase the total distance view.
Narrow Band Imaging™ (NBI™) technology continues to be featured in the EVIS X1 endoscopy system. NBI technology enhances visual observation of mucosal and vascular patterns by utilizing specific blue and green wavelengths absorbed by hemoglobin.
Streamline procedures: The touch panel on the CV-1500 video system center allows the user to initiate all procedures and settings and control image data from one device.
MyCV mode: MyCV mode allows a physician to personalize imaging configurations and turn multiple functions off and on with a single scope button.
TXI, RDI, BAI-MAC and NBI technologies are not intended to replace histopathological sampling as a means of diagnosis. These are adjunctive tools for endoscopic examination that can be used to supplement Olympus white light imaging.
